SISTER SISTER

I'm outrageously proud to report that my sister is featured as a "Mom Crush" in the latest issue of Washingtonian Mom Magazine! With gorgeous photos by the very talented Kate Warren, the entire issue is a MUST READ. Congratulations, Cortney – you're a total MOM-INSPIRATION.

And re: MOM-INSPIRATION/CELEBRATION STATION, I don't often veer into the very personal, but I did want to share that my Mom finished with her final chemotherapy treatment yesterday. We're all incredibly proud of her, and thrilled to no end that today is, in effect, the first day of the rest of her life. (WEEPING)

SWANK (A PREVIEW)

Paris Air, curated by Marie B. Gauthiez
I'm spending the afternoon at the studio, unpacking amazing ring after ring (after earring, after necklace, after bracelet) in preparation for our 10 day jewelry pop-up shop, SWANK [SPRING]! Featuring collections by seven artists (all of the above, and with DIGDOGDIG, to boot), my studiomate Victoria and I are so excited for tomorrow night's opening.

DC readers, we'll be celebrating the shop launch on Thursday, from 6-9PM at the Wild Hand. We'd love to see you!

SOFT ROCK SPRING

With the soft, soft sounds of Lindsey-Buckingham-in-eyeliner-era Fleetwood Mac (and its accompanying album art) as a starting point, I present (sans shame; irony) the soundtrack I'll have on repeat for the next few days. Enjoy!

WORKSPACE [17]

Young Frankk designer Christine Young's Richmond, VA home studio is a representation of her aesthetic taste, and of her line as well. Fun, delicate, and quirky (in the best way), we're big fans of the way she kept the space white and uncluttered, but focused small areas with color, textures, pictures, and random little things. It's airy and open, without being boring or empty.

Her most recent collection was made using the lost wax process and it's a little jazzed up, featuring sterling silver and gold/rose-gold plating. Shop it here.
